Almost all parts purchased/paid for now. Everything is shipping to dealer to hold until the car arrives.

Now for some aftermarket electronics, DashDaq II and GPS Snitch. Maybe a VBOX mini or 3i 100hz system.

Dymag dealer called to say they are not sure now if the wheels will fit for sure. :(

DashDaq II with GM codes purchased, waiting to head to the big city to buy GPS Snitch.

Changed the exhaust due to availability.
Cancelled the Dymag wheels as I don't want to be the test fit case from over 8000 miles away. Now looking for non-staggered wheels.
Added upgraded spark plugs and wire set.

Hey Solo...Sounds great! I am in the middle of a engine build & swap for my new SS. MTI Racing has the polyurethane engine mounts.

Yeah, but I called them and availability is not yet. After looking at some of the dyno vids I was completely convinced of the need for motor and transmission mounts.

Some updates due to hold ups in shipping from overseas.

Car is almost fully modified according to list above, just waiting on the PCM to come back from Hennessey and the Holden clutch fluid reservoir. Hood graphics and 3M protection film waiting at the graphics shop for delivery of the car.

First set of build pictures posted. No explanation yet as I have to go and drive it to the dyno.

Some outside pictures of the graphics when I get back.
